Mountain House uses a variety of innovative technologies to provide environmentally friendly services and amenities. For example, a computer controlled irrigation system senses rainfall and automatically shuts off sprinkler systems to conserve water. All homes are available with an electrical car outlet in the garage in order to promote environmentally friendly cars. Water meters use radio transmission technology to provide faster, more efficient meter readings. Traffic signals will be timed and monitored through a central hub to detect traffic flow and ease traffic congestion. These are just a few ways Mountain House uses technology to provide basic services for residents and conserve resources. Residents in Mountain House receive the best of both worlds: conveniences of a modern age, with a comforting and welcoming neighborhood feeling of the past.

Community Profile

Though strategically located near the Bay Area and close to major freeways, Mountain House was designed not simply to be another commuter town, but to be a self-sufficient community offering employment, goods, services, and recreation all within its boundaries. Land use and circulation are designed to encourage walking, bicycling, and transit use in a highly landscaped, visually attractive community. It has a current population of approximately 10,000 (2010 census data) and is expected to grow to nearly 44,000. Mountain House was designed to maximize community benefits while minimizing adverse impacts on surrounding areas. With the influx of residents, businesses, and industrial areas, Mountain House ensured that people would be able to live, work, attend school and shop without having to drive outside the community, thus reducing traffic impacts.
